The NISA Portfolio Management Analyst Rotational Program is a two-year program that includes four rotations within NISA’s Portfolio Management department. In Year One, all analysts work together to gain foundational knowledge and understanding of broad asset classes and financial instruments. During this year, the focus is on learning and providing general support for the overall portfolio management process. In Year Two, Analysts build upon their foundations from Year One, and rotate through the corporate bond, derivatives, and interest-rate groups. In these years, analysts focus on portfolio management responsibilities more specific to each group.
Over a two-year period, an individual should gain an understanding of financial markets, portfolio management, and trading while working in a fast paced and collaborative environment. An Analyst will focus on the development of knowledge, skills, and abilities in the following areas: financial markets and asset classes, market conventions and mechanics, portfolio construction and benchmarks, risk management, performance calculation and attribution, and trade valuation and execution.
